Saxophonist Kit Mlynar, an award-winning graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London, visited aspiring musicians at Winstanley College this week.
Kit, who studied at the Royal Academy, complemented her traditional training by touring with The Who’s legendary front man Roger Daltrey, appearing in professional shows at the National Theatre, performing at esteemed London jazz spots the Jazz Cafe and 100 Club, and working in tandem with DJs at the iconic super-club, the Ministry of Sound.
Kit spoke to the students about her incredible career including sharing the stage with Michael Bolton, Billy Preston, Darlene Love, Cliff Richard, Gareth Gates and performing in the long-running West End show Chicago.
She offered advice on tips on how to make it in the industry, leaving the audience feeling excited and inspired about what possibilities lie ahead.
Paul Clay, Music tutor who organised the visit, said: ‘having professional musicians visit is a really important part of our teaching as it helps students to understand the ups and downs of the industry. Thank you to Kit for being so accommodating and spending time chatting to students individually about their hopes and ambitions.’
